- U. S. TIL CARE STIFF FII 18 GIVEW STREET ! CAR CONDUCTOR FOR CHILDREN OF YANKEE SOLDIERS . The first street car motorman to be arrested for heedless driving of a trolley and plastered with the heaviest j fine for such an offense is the record held by Joseph Silva, Rapid Transit motonnan, -who ; was tried In police court Wednesday. Silva was arrested on a warrant issued by Chauffeur Li- cense Inspector Bob Lillis. :-u - The accident which caused . the ar rest of the motonnan occurred last week at Alakea and King streets about 5 o'clock in the afternoon, when the - home-going traffic was. at its height. The traffic officer stopped movement of- vehicles . down King street, when a Japanese on a Bicycle became impatient and went shooting by the officer. The officer ' gave chase, and it was then that Silva started things doing. He moved his car, which bumped into a Stutz, which bumped a . Ford, which bumped a buggy and started the horse ambling down the street. The repair auto was 'cabled to carry the Ford to the shop. Investigated Affair r; When Inspector Lillis heard of the affair he investigated the case and had a warrant issued for the arrest of ( Silva on a charge of heedless driving. -4r This Is the first record in local po ylice annals where a ! motorman has ; been arrested for driving a car heed- lessly. And when he appeared, before Judge Irwin in police court he paid I the heaviest fine for that charge on : record. ; ,:' ,- "Unless this reckless operating of Street cars is stopped," declared -Prosecuting Attorney Charles Chilling- worth in police court, arguing against j Silva, "the street cars ought to be WASHINGTON, D.

S. department of labor. b ' Separation allowances arj . granted not only in European countries. where the pay of the private soldier of the lowest rank runs from 39 cent3 : to $7.30 a month, but in Canada and Aus tralia which pay him; $33 and $43,80 while he is engaged Jn roMten ser vice. V In. addition to the soldier's pay the wife and children of the Cana dian soldier receive from the govern ment $20 a month; and tne allowance to the family of the Australian sol dier varies according to the number of children up to a maximum of near ly $30 a month ; The pensions allowed by law to wives and children of soldiers killed in service are shown to be consider ably higher also In Great Britain and the British dominions than in the United ; States. And the report de scribes various ways In which foreign governments are making an effort to meet the special needs of individual families. I - - ; U . :' In presenting this report to the sec retary of labor, the chief of the child ren's ; bureau speaks of the general study cf child welfare in the warring countries which Is being conducted by the children's 'bureau and says: "The relation of all these question. of chiid welfare to the living condi tions behind the lines is clear. It is also plain that the living conditions f taken off the public highways. They in large measure depend upon the I endanger the lives of too many people I provisions; made by the - respective to allow the motorman to run the cars! governments; for : soldiers and their Cites Example J "When a motorman takes a whole block to stop his car In, , as I know of In one case, It's time to ' swear out J warrants, said Bob lillis. "I- know J 'of an Incident when the conductor got I scared at the speed - of the car and igave the motorman three bells. That means an Instant stop. It took the i motorman just one block's length to kstop that car. " . rLillis further'said tiat lie was going ! after reckless motormen just as much as motorists. Silya's case - has a pe- cuilar interest, as It is the first Action taken against street car drivers, al- though - trolley speeding his caused . many a bad moment for autoists and pedestrians. It further shows -that i because the trolleys run. on tracks j al of men from the ordinary walks of life to form a large army must create similar problems here, the question of what ; countries v offer ..important suggestions for a system of soldiers compensation- in -this : country be comes at' once basic to the considera tion of child welfare in war time. ; "The material contained In the ac companying report; together with the earlier report vupon; the care of depehdents of enlisted men," In Cana da, has been already utilized in draft ing a proposed measure for soldiers' compensation in the United States by the Hon.?
